tonight 6:00 p.m. right here on the fox news channel. >> heather: president obama sounding that lawmakers will reach a deal on the so-called fiscal cliff. expiring tax cuts that go into effect at the end of the year unless congress reaches an agreement. here is a report from washington. >> reporter: while touring a monastery, the fiscal cliff was on his mind and he told a buddhist monk that american leaders could use his prayers. >> president later said she going take any good thing he can get and prominent republicans indicates their party knows that concessions must be made to avoid the fiscal cliff. that is a two way street. g.o.p. is on board for new revenue doesn't mean that they on higher taxes over ten years like the president wants. >> if we take the president's deal that he has brought to the table, you know how many days that pays for the federal government? it's eight days, not eight months, eight days. >> house minority leader says she does not expect a deal for tax deals for the wealthiest americans but she thinks there is an agreement is on the horizon. >> the elements for a

of an instinct on obama's part to press forward in a second term by reaching out more. >> all right. very good. >> jon meacham. >> have you sent one to the president yet? >> i have not. i should do that. >> you need to do that, jon. you need to sign it and send it to the president. he's a big reader. >> as ever, you're ahead of me. so i'll do that. thank you. >> all right, jon meacham, the new book, "thomas jefferson: the art of power." >>> when we come back, vice chair of the senate intelligence committee, senator saxby chambliss, also "bloomberg's" josh green on the three factors he says will decide the fiscal cliff. and david gregory joins the set as well. there's david. >> all right. >> keep it right here on "morning joe." anncr: some politicians seem to think medicare and... social security are just numbers in a budget. well, we worked hard for those benefits. we earned them. and if washington tries to cram decisions about the future... of these programs into a last minute budget deal... we'll all pay the price. aarp is fighting to protect seniors with responsible... solutions that streng
they feel a lite bit in control. >>> right now, president obama is on his way to get a firsthand look at sandy's destruction in new york city. he'll also meet with families still trying to recover. yesterday, the president talked about the superstorm and he also talked about climate change. . >> have been an extraordinarily large number of severe weather events here in north america, but also around the globe. and i am a firm believer that climate change is real that it is impacted by human behavior, and carbon emissions. and as a consequence, i think we've got an obligation to future generations to do something about it. >> he says he's going to sit down with a burge of experts and try to come up with ways to protect our planet. victor blackwell is in staten island, victor, good morning. i don't suppose people who have like damaged homes from superstorm sandy are thinking much about climate change at the moment though. >> no. maybe that conversation will come, carol, but not today. they're talking about the people who have died in this community. they're talking about this, their bus
obama on the podium. he was aggressive, particularly on the issue of susan rice. >> you're right. this is not the kind of emotion that we have grown to see from the president. he tends to hold back a bit, not be as emotional. this was an area where the president came out very strong, saying that these attacks from republicans have simply been unfair. he called them outrageous. he said if they want to point fenger at anyone, attack anyone, they should dop it the ahim. take a listen. >> but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and besmirch her reputation is outrageous. and, you know, we're after an election now. >> the president also had some very strong words when it came to those bush era tax cuts saying that he will not extend them for the wealthiest of americans. he wants a comprehensive plan so that middle class americans won't be impacted over the long haul and the president believing and saying that even other economists agree as well that wealthy americans can
happens. thank you. >> all right. >>> president obama got a firsthand look today at parts of new york that were hardest hit by superstorm sandy. thousands of new yorkers, yes, thousands of new yorkers still don't have power two and a half weeks after sandy hit. the storm is raising serious questions about the government's response, even bigger questions about weather patterns, at least for some. let's bring in our white house correspondent brianna keilar -- actually, brianna is not yet available i'm told. but we do expect to get her up soon. we'll speak to brianna keilar momentarily. we'll also have a quick check of some of the day's other top stories. that's coming up including mitt romney, did he hurt himself with gaffes during his presidential campaign? is he hurting the republican party right now with his latest comments, the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, he's standing by to join us live. (splashing)... (child screaming underwater)... (underwater noises). >>> we've reconnected with brianna keilar, our white house correspondent, brianna keilar, is watching what's going on in ne
the discussions of the time lines, what is also clear that it took the obama white house more than a week to publicly say that it was terrorism. so you do have this discrepancy. the cia director saying it was terrorism, really right out of the gate but the white house having this lag of eight days, bill. bill: a specific question here. answer it as best as you can. what do we believe general petraeus thought that anti-muslim film contributed specifically now to what was happening in benghazi? do we know officially yet how he believes the film either played a part or did not play a part? >> we don't know from the readout from lawmakers outside of that hearing this morning but, i would pay particularly attention to what we just heard from the ranking member. several lawmakers have now described how the first attack seemed more disjointed. not very coordinated as these militants overran the consulate. and the second attack on the cia annex seemed to have much more command-and-control. it was far more organized. it had the use of mortars. mortars are an indicator of premeditation. there may w
. for many weeks and many months and as president obama has been saying, israel has a clear right to defend itself. but there comes a point where the israelis are going to have an interest in a cease-fire and i hope that point will be in the next day or two because the civilian casualties are mounting in gaza as your koncorresponden have shown just today and yesterday. if the israelis try a ground invasion there's a real fear in the united states and in western europe and in arab capitals, that will lead to further bloodshed, further violence, and i remember, carol, the lebanon war of 2006 where in the first day it is went in israel's favor, and then the whole world and the whole war turned on israel when there were civilian casualties in lebanon itself. so the israelis certainly have a right to defend themselves, but they also have to be careful here. a cease-fire i think is in the interest of both sides. the question is will egypt be adept enough in putting together that kind of cease-fire? >> we'll see. ambassador nicholas burns, thank you so much for joining us. we appreciate it. >> tha
without any political weighing in on any side. >> all right. more to come on this. thank you both very much. >> thank you. >>> up next, more on the petraeus affair and the political battle over the obama administration's handling of the attack on benghazi. we'll get reaction here from the man leading the charge against the administration and against ambassador susan rice, senator lindsey graham. >>> later, fallout from the campaign after mitt romney's surprising comments this week and the future of the republican party. our roundtable weighs in on that. tom friedman and andrea mitchell will rejoin the conversation. plus, republican congressman raul labrador, former white house chief of staff for bill clinton john podesta, and gop strategist mike murphy, ahead here on "meet the press." >>> "meet the press" is brought to you by chevron. we may have more in common than you think. you can learn more at chevron.com.you can learn more you can learn more at chevron.com.you we're sittinge on a bunch of shale gas. there's natural gas under my town. it's a game changer. ♪ it means cleaner, che
. >> all right. but let me go back to one other thing. are you saying -- you've been in the foreign service. you've been an ambassador. you're saying that president obama will really not take a side here? he will not take a position here? i have not heard him on the subject of hamas. he has criticized them. but i haven't heard him really bear down, it's a terrorist thug group. and do you think that he doesn't get the egyptians that are playing footsie with hamas? the egyptian prime minister, the number two guy was in gaza today with the prime minister of hamas, or whatever he's called. do you think obama doesn't get that? you really think he's going to try to play both sides against the middle? >> no, i -- look, he does get it. he talked to the israeli prime minister. i have confidence that the americans understand that israel cannot tolerate these types of missile attacks. and for all intents and purposes i suspect that the administration gave the israelis a green light. but of course they're concerned, as the israelis are, over what may happen if they in effect cause the egyptians to act
're absolutely right, from truman, if you want the history, to george bush, people talked about solving the crisis. president obama actually kind of turned away from the region, from the conflict. but now there is noise to do what he can do in the second administration, not the first. it always frustrates american presidents, and if the realities remain as they are, and again, the introduction of this hamas as an element. the hamas armed by the iranians. and hamas granting iran a beachhead in the mediterranean. >> i found it very interesting, when i was speaking, somebody who knows the region very well, our very own jim clancy, covering the region for years. he said the strategy is antiquated, the way that israel is proceeding with the conflict, nobody will reach a resolution. >> well, i don't think i would put it this way. i think when the government is facing a rogue organization and the government is living under rockets and living under missiles from gaza, there is no choice but to do -- but to have these encounters and to have these incursions. but we must go back and look for fund
us from going over the so-called fiscal cliff. president obama is dealing with all this in the midst of his trip to asia. >> -- would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders. we're fully supportive of israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes and workplaces and potentially killing civilians. >> we begin this hour with a developing story out of the middle east. let's go to stephanie gosk live in tel aviv. we were just hearing from ayman. it's pretty quiet in his location. what are you seeing there? what about the cease fire and the possibility of that? >> reporter: well, richard, it's been quiet here for a number of hours. there were sirens here earlier this evening. it's the second time today we heard rocket sirens in the city. the second time, the same situation that happened this morning, where they used the iron dome missile defense system and shot down those rockets. that defense system has been incredibly successful for the israelis over the course of the last five days. you know, people on both sides of this conflict
on the right have short memories. that shocked democrats and got their ground operation up and running sooner than they would have otherwise. >> barack obama started building his cam paint day after he got elected. the republican party has an infrastructure problem. i assume they probably figured that out and will work on that over the next four years because that in the end of the day i think is why yes they had a problem with their message, yes, they picked a candidate who was sort of particularly ill suited for the times, but at the same time i think a lot of this has to do with the fact that obama knew where his voters were, who they were, and bombarded them and turned them out. bill: stayed in contact with them for four years and went through them to find other potential voters who weren't there in situate. in the even it's pretty simple. michigan beat iowa 42-17. >> i had a feeling they didn't score many points if he was joking about the offensive coordinator. bill: send me a tweet at bill hemmer because you asked. martha: the fiscal cliff is looming. nancy pelosi drawing a fine the san
in the coming days. >>> two other big stories we are following at this hour. right now we're waiting for remarks from president obama here in new york. he's here touring the devastation as a result of hurricane sandy and getting an update on recovery efforts. the president visiting staten island at this moment, one of the areas where thousands of people are still without power, many, many are homeless. more than two weeks after the storm, a lot of folks wondering where the help is. we will bring you the president's comments as he makes them. >>> plus, we are also getting new details on a scandal involving david petraeus. we now know he will testify before the house and senate intel committees tomorrow concerning the deadly terror attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. that comes as a new "wall street journal" report raises questions about the events leading up to his resignation. including whether he may have been pushed out not so much because of this affair, but for challenging the administration's version of events on libya. again, that is, that is news reported by our sister company, "the wa
and global challenges. getting the relationship with china right is a long-term effort. we will continue to make this a priority in president obama's second term and as new leadership takes the range in beijing. hu jintao had 13 face-to-face meetings when president obama came into office in 2009. we have built an extensive set of mechanisms and channels of communication to work on this relationship and i think it has resulted in a positive, constructive relationship, not to say there are not going to be issues, but i think we have put in place a superstructure to be able to manage these issues going forward. i have spent an enormous amount of time with chinese leadership, and i look forward to working with the new leadership team in beijing. fifth, and last element of strategy -- we're not going to do all 12. the fifth element of strategy involves advancing the region's architecture. we are seeking trade that is open, free and fair. we are seeking an open system in which the rules are clear and every nation plays by them. we continued to work with our partners toward a seamless regional
. >>> president obama's inauguration is still a couple months away, but with all the talk of scandal dominating washington right now, it's starting to feel like his second term has already begun. here's cnn's john berman. >> so, wolf, it took like 76 hours r the president's re-election to get subsumed in the whole petraeus/broadwell/alan/kelley mess. it may be the perfect introduction to the realities of re-election. it really is enough to give you second thoughts about that second term. >> reporter: president obama, you were just elected to a second term. what are you going to do next? go to disney world? doubtful. embark on immigration reform? possible. avoid the fiscal cliff? maybe. but if history has taught us anything, perhaps the first thing he should do is lawyer up. we're not suggesting the president is in any kind of legal jeopardy, it's just that second terms have become synonymous with scandal. richard nixon's second term -- >> well, i'm not a crook. >> reporter: he resigned in the wake of watergate. ronald reagan's second term -- >> a few months ago, i told the american people i did
know will ask me, president obama, during his first term, chose not to visit israel permanenty, in his capacity as president. he is on an asian tour right now, talking a lot about economics and the economies -- he was in thailand this morning. should he be in the region right now? >> maybe not in the region right now because the negotiations that are going on would just be distracted by the president being on the ground out there. but he certainly needs to make a trip out to the region. he needs to make a trip to israel and to some of the other countries, like jordan in the region, to reassure the people that we are indeed engaged and will be engaged in the future. >> jamie: all right. ambassador, thank you very much for being with us. i appreciate your insight on it. i am sure, like us, you must be hearing from people in the region who are gravely concerned, right? >> absolutely. on botheds. people are very, very nervous. they don't want to see a war. everybody loses in a war. there has to be a way out of this. >> jamie: i hope so, sir. nice to meet you. thank you, ambassador walker.
, alex, as mike just said, what president obama said sound a little bit like a green light for israel to do whatever it takes necessary. what's happening right now is with the army here is doing all it takes to prepare for a ground invasion of gaza. but no order has been given. i'm pretty sure they don't want to give the order. the whole point of these strikes has been to stop the palestinian rocket fire into israel. it hasn't really worked. that's why a ground invasion is still an option. today just about an hour ago a rocket was fired here from gaza to tel aviv where i'm standing. there is a warning hamas still does have this capability. it's been a bitter day and ferocious day of fighting especially earlier on. there were 200 rocket -- air force attacks by israel on gaza just in the early hours of the morning. 200. and they targeted targets they have not aimed at before. this time they went into civilian buildings belonging to the hamas government, symbols of power if you like in gaza. they knocked out the prime minister's office there. his office was totally flattened. that was a
" this morning, negotiations happening right now. but will it stop the bloodshed between gaza and israel? anderson cooper live for us this morning in gaza. >> president obama takes a historic trip to myanmar and cambodia. what he has to say and why everyone is not happy the president is even there? >> is the black friday frenzy all just a big scam? how you can stay home this year and still get the best deals. >>> the clock is ticking here on the fiscal cliff. we continue to talk about it. 43 days to go. why there is new optimism there will be a deal reached soon. >> it is monday, november 19th. "starting point" begins right now. >>> good morning, everyone. soledad is off today. we want to welcome in our special team that's joined us here. "new york times" columnist. nan hayworth. ron brownstein, cnn political analyst is here as well. >> welcome to you all. we will be talking here in a moment. we have to begin with the huge story. "starting point," this morning, death and despair mounting in the middle east. the conflict in gaza city, it is intensifying. it's been intensifying overnight.
was a mass wave of terror. wr very to learn the lesson, just as the united states and president obama would not imagine to management with -- >> a false camp parson. >> osama bin laden. >> that's a false comparison. >> that's exactly the situation. where you are sitting right now, the lapped of israel is not occupied. the land of israel belongs to the jewish state. >> say that to the 2 million palestinians that occupy it. that's not the point. >> the palestinians have their own land and instead of using it for peaceful entity of their own, they are using it to shoot my own kids. i served in the army, in many combat missions. believe me, i want peace more than anyone. i have no desire to go fight, risk myself and have my kids become orphans. not something i want to do. but faced with a very determine ed radical islamic enemy, we're not going to give in. we'll fight as much as necessary to protect the jewish state. >> but that kind of grandstanding, pompous statement, black and white clap trap doesn't necessarily ensure the long-term safety of the state of israel, something we're all interest
with right now. and it leaves the united states at a difficult position. you remember president obama said in that -- in that interview with telemundo that he wasn't sure if egypt was a steadfast ally anymore. right now when you have egyptian officials coming here and expressing solidarity with hamas, it's clear why the united states had those doubts. >> richard engel, thank you very much. >>> here is erica. >> lester, thanks. we are learning more today about september's deadly consulate attack. former cia director david petraeus, still reeling from revelations of his affair testified on capitol hill behind closed doors. kristen welker has more. >> reporter: general petraeus snuck in and out of the capitol on friday, but his testimony is still making waves with lawmakers. some say it only raises more questions about the way the administration handled the bengahzi attack. reporters were blocked from petraeus to spare him embarrassment. lawmakers say petraeus testified that cia immediately believed that terrorists were involved in the assault, that is in contrast to what secretary rice said
israel. it is the kind of unpredictable situation that egypt will have a tough time dealing with right now and it leaves the united states in a very difficult position. you remember, president obama said in that interview with telemundo that he wasn't sure egypt was really even a steadfast ally right now, he said it's not quite an enemy. right now when you have egyptian officials expressing such solidarity with hamas, it's clear to see why the united states had those doubts. >> richard engel in gaza, thanks very much. >>> we are learning more today about september's deadly consulate attack in benghazi, libya. former cia director david petraeus still reeling from the revelation of his affair, testified on capitol hill behind closed doors. kristin welker is in our washington bureau with more. good morning. >> reporter: general petraeus snuck in and out of the capital on friday, but his testimony is still making waves with lawmakers. some say it only raises more questions about the way the administration landled the benghazi attack. due to the firestorm surrounding his life, reporters wer
obama is going to look at his legacy and looking at markets. he has a terrific opportunity right here and right now to embrace small business, get the markets growing again and really do a lot for his legacy in the long run. rick: simon, americans do seem to want to see a certain level of cooperation between the parties. you know, but this is a president who has not really shown a willingness to reach across the aisle. now in his second term does that change? >> well, i don't agree with the first statement but i think that he has made it clear from his statements of the last few days that he expects to work with john boehner and republicans and mitch mcconnell in the senate to try to, you know, tackle a few big things. i think one of the things my, the other guest said, which is just fallacious and wrong and shouldn't be repeated is that the idea that the raising rates on people over $250,000 is going to hit a majority of small business owners. >> simon, y a small business. you're a policy wonk. >> you keep saying it doesn't make it true. 97% of small business owners will be exempt fr
obama. what do you think? what is the right way forward in our relations with china at this time? what's the right thing to do? >> one, i think you have, and you all know this, you know. what you hear from barack obama or mitt romney, the candidate, is going to be different than what you're going to hear from barack obama for president, i would have heard with romney for president. that's just the way of campaigns, and you all know that. i think you have to think of china in two ways. and one was come it is sort of summed up. i had a meeting in beijing a couple weeks ago and i met with a man named john who will be the premier of china. so he's talking in chinese, very interesting man. and he says something in chinese and the translator translated, america and china are not rivals. i thought well, that's interesting. and he stopped the translator and said no know. i didn't say we were not rivals. we are rivals. but i said we're not necessarily on the opposite side of the table. and i think he captured something very important there. i think the way you need to take about china is this w
obama at his news conference when he felt like republicans senators were beating up unnecessarily on susan rice? >> i think the republican senators were right in raising the question of why did soup rice go on five stations, five or six days after that -- and i don't think they were beating up on susan rice. in a way, i don't think it's all about susan rice. i think it's actually what happened. who made the memo changes, what did the white house know, when did they know it, what were they told and why did the president give a speech at the u.n. talking about the video when it was really a terrorist attack by al-qaeda and other groups like that? >> ultimately you think you'll get the committee? >> i think the american people will demand it. >> great to have you on board. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> stay with us. fair and balanced next in the second half hour of our discussion on this subject, the congressman, adam schiff, views on the petraeus testimony will also be explained here. stay with us [ male announcer ] this is anna, her long day teaching the perfect swing
spokesman and asked how president obama is being kept informed about the crisis. >> no crisis in the world would allow rocket fire indiscriminately into their country. we support israel's right to defend itself and, you know, have been in constant contact with them. that said we think everyone will benefit. >> what does constant contact meet? phone conversations with the prime minister? >> the president has been talking to president benjamin netanyahu daily, talked to president morrissey of egypt, to the prime minister and talking to people that have a relationship with hamas to tell them that de-escalation is in everyone's interests. this will only lead to civilian casualties. i don't mean to draw false equivalents. this started because hamas is raining rockets down into civilian populations and they have to stop. >> sounds like the president believes hamas has to basically ceasefire first. >> hamas started the conflict and they need to stop raining rocket fire down into israeli population centers. now you asked about how the president is being kept abreast. the president's national secur
to an eagerness or willingness to engage or become involved militarily in that conflict. >> all right, ben. in jerusalem this morning. thanks. >>> coming up later, soledad will be speaking to israel's deputy foreign minister. that's in our 7:00 hour. >>> here at home, president obama will have the four top leaders of congress over to the white house today to begin talks on avoiding the fiscal cliff, which could plunge the u.s. economy back into a recession. both side say there is room for compromise, but at the same time, it appears democrats and republicans may have dug in on their long-held positions concerning tax hikes and spending cuts. jill doherty is in our washington bureau. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> jill, both sides have said they are optimistic about a deal here. they're also not budging on some key issues. >> yeah, i mean, there is some room around the edges, but essentially, and this is the the opening gambit, of course. they're both talking about taxes. the president saying -- and revenue. the president saying that he wants more revenue from the wealthiest ameri
. just as the united states or president obama would not imagine to negotiate with -- >> that's a false comparison. that's a false comparison. >> that's exactly the situation. you know, where you're sitting right now, the land of israel is not occupied. the land of israel belongs to the jewish state. >> say that to the palestinians. >> that's not the point. >> the palestinians have their own land and instead of using it for a peaceful entity of their own, they're using it to shoot -- >> that's not fair. >> we want peace. believe me, i want peace more than anyone. i have no desire to go out and fight and risk myself and have my kids become orphans. that's not something we want to do. but faced with a very determined radical islamic enemy that wants to wipe us out, i'll be very clear. we're going to stand strong. we're not going to give in to any radical islamists that want to kill us. we will fight as much as necessary to protect the jewish state. >> but that kind of grandstanding, pompous statement, black and white claptrap doesn't necessarily ensure the long term safety of the state of
at 10:15 a.m. eastern. speaking on on cnbc thursday, the co-chairs of president obama's deficit commission alan simpson and erskine bowles say you law make are haven't been focused on what's really right for the country. >> leaders who think it would be to their advantage to go off a fiscal cliff. what a wonderful trait that is. that we can win more democrats if we let it go over, we can win more with republicans. this whole game is not about win or lose. it's about how do we make the dems lose and how do we make the republicans lose. people are sick of that and they're ashamed of if. >> if we do get our house in order, the future of america is really bright. and we can compete with the best and brightest. if we don't, we're well on on our way to becoming a second rate power. >> simpson isn't hopeful a deal will be reached before the end of the year. bowles sees a one third chance. on that optimistic note, joining us is ben white from politico. so what's it going to be, economic chaos? >> no, i think i'm at more saa more sanguine. republicans lost seats in the house and senate a
. now, her and the rest of the olympic team have visited the white house. was mr. obama able to get a smile out of her? we'll show you, coming up. >> that's a big question. >>> also, special delivery. what fast food chain is making it easier to have it your way right at home? and right here in the studio, as well. take a guess, ron. it's coming up. >> we'll get to that in a bit. >>> we're going to start with the opening statements in a case we've been following closely here on "gma." the high school valedictorian accused of killing his own mother. the young man so popular in his hometown, the judge had trouble empaneling an impartial jury. abc's john muller has been on this story all week. good morning, john. >> reporter: he's a beloved figure in his community, all-around good guy. his mother had a violent, dark side. jeffrey pyne says he didn't kill her. his surviving family says he didn't do it. but yesterday, prosecutors began making their case. 22-year-old jeffrey pyne sat expressionless, as prosecutors told the jury how the former high school valedictorian bludgeoned, stabbed a

. hearings are underway right now on capitol hill and lawmakers are still trying to figure out what exactly went wrong on september 11th that led to the murder of four americans. the hearings coming a day after president obama defended u.n. ambassador susan rice who was criticized for her remarks immediately following this attack. she is reportedly in contention to succeed hillary clinton as our secretary of state, take a listen. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmurch her reputation is outrageous. jenna: senator john cornyn of texas what's elected to be the senate's minority whip, a bit of a promotion if you will. thanks to have you back on the program. >> thank you, jenna, good to be with you. jenna: your reaction on what the president had to say yesterday in. >> i thought it was an overreaction to say
borders. so we are fully supportive of israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes. >> firm word from president obama. but president obama knows that any mandate he can claim after reelection is one focusing on domestic concerns. does he have the political capital to more deeply engage the united states in a seemingly never-ending conflict, possibly with no foreseeable end. at the table, rule a gentleman bril, chris hayes, my friend and host of "up with chris hayes" here on msnbc and jane eisner, the editor in chief of the jewish daily forward and mark quarterman, research director at the enough project. thank you all for being here. so this is -- as i was saying earlier this morning, this is going to be a pretty sober conversation. i want to be clear that sometimes the topics we take on, on mhp are my wheelhouse and the things that i sort of have my fundamental point to make. today i feel more like the audience in that i feel overwhelmed by this -- these developments. i feel distressed by them. i feel, chris, like we don't have necessarily even the common v
everybody's got to give to get everybody to the table. >> i think right now the key question is we know we need additional revenues for the next ten years. >> we also know we need additional spending cuts. >> and president obama has put that on the table. >> let's talk about the cuts, because joe here has talked, what did you say, you said it was 1 to 1 1/2? >> if he sticks to where he was at 1.2. >> summer of 2011 originally -- >> 1.2, no he wants 1.6 now. he's at 1.6 and we're talking about four total so that's 2.4 to 1.6 would be 1.5 to 1, when he was with boehner, 800, wanted another 4. >> you were in the room so you know. >> first of all, since we talk about bowles-simpson so much, bowles-simpson has a 1:1 ratio. >> it doesn't. >> i thought it's 1:4. >> it's 1:3. >> in the way the bowles-simpson frame was put out something people didn't realize was that in terms of the revenue number they weren't counting the expiration of the high income tax cuts which they proposed to get rid of. apples to apples, in terms of the way people are currently adding up their math, it's approximately a 1:

gains tax increase. there are a number of things frightening republicans right now, there's a number of things that should truly be frightening democrats. democrats control the white house, they have a larger majority in the senate. there is certainly some onus on president obama, the white house and senate majority leader harry reid to show that the democratic party can govern in a moment of great fiscal crisis. so i think there's a tremendous amount of pressure to go around here. while the conventional wisdom is that the president is in the driver's seat, i think that there's plenty of leverage to be had on capitol hill. jon: and republicans are not likely going to want to give a whole lot on tax increases. >> there's no doubt. and that's why you sort of look for that line in the sand and whether or not it's going to be drawn on capitol hill. it's not too early to think about 2014 for senators who may be up for re-election in 2014 and even for members of the house. it's never too early in washington to think about your next election, so i don't think there's any doubt that members
